“People do not become happy by satisfying desires. Happiness comes from upholding a certain balance, by living according to a system of beliefs that restrains them and gives coherence to their desires. ‘Above all the other necessities of human nature, above the satisfaction of any other need, above hunger, love, pleasure, fame – even life itself – what a man most needs is the conviction that he is contained within the discipline of an ordered existence.’ ”



Walter Lippmann (September 23, 1889 – December 14, 1974), Father of Modern Journalism, the American Public Intellectual,and Author of many books including ‘A Preface to Morals‘, quoted by Gurcharan Das in ‘The Difficulty of Being Good – on the Subtle Art of Dharma‘, Winner of two Pulitzer Prizes (Photo Source: Wikipedia).
